2014 NextNOW Fest

NextNOW Fest

The Fruits
 

Thursday, September 11 - Sunday, September 14, 2014

For the first time ever, The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center is kicking off our season with four days of fun and frolic with the NextNOW Fest! Discover the next big thing in small, intimate and surprising environments: sonic massages, subway buskers, Terptastic jazz, deep theatre for your short attention span, dance mysteries, late-night art explosions, food frolics, an arts tailgate, and toast… and then something curious… and then…

The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center is building the future of the arts now! We are breaking through traditional boundaries in art making and audience experience by being a hub of innovation and possibility. We are creating artistic opportunities that build connections, foster exploration and invigorate you to find your voice.

Most events are free. All events are freeing.

In case you missed it…
